We went here for our Anniversary celebration. The ambiance can't be beat, the food is delicious and the service is perfect. They have special drinks as well as an excellent wine list. The menu is innovative American, with premium fresh ingredients. I really enjoyed the watermelon and arugula salad and the whipped brie with cherries on toast. The lobster bisque... More

It had been a number of years since we had last visited the Dilworthtown Inn, but reserved it for a small family gathering after a graduation. The setting and the wait service was as we had recalled - great. The food was incredible, and everyone loved their dinners. The Short Ribs, the scallops, the lobster, the seafood special - everyone... More

We have celebrated several special occasions here and it is the perfect place. Ambiance is great, service is fantastic and setting is memorable. For those special time (anniversary, etc), this is the perfect place.

I agree with others: Dilworthtown had better make some changes. This is not the restaurant it used to be, and I've been coming here for 25 years. SERVICE: We were a party of 7 tonight. Our waitress, Patty, was not good. She was not attentive and disappeared for long stretches (and it was not busy at all.) She wanted to... More

We celebrated our 25th anniversary there in 1999 and then moved away. We just recently came back to the area and went to celebrate our 42nd. While the atmosphere hasn't changed, the food has. They have a huge menu but very limited entree choices. I couldn't find anything appealing and settled for a ceasar salad (average) and a side of... More

In the past we have visited Dilworthtown Inn many times but got away from it. We just went for our anniversary and had a fabulous meal. I had tiger prawns stuffed with crabmeat and wrapped with seaweed, lobster cake on risotto with lobster bisque and clementine cosmos. Every item was mouthwatering especially since I didn't know what to expect from... More

Let me preface this by saying it was Mother's Day when we went to dinner here last night. That said we waited an hour for appetizers only to here our waiter say as we finished them that he had just fired our food. That took another 20 minutes. The food was good. Nothing to inventive, but nothing unpalatable. I had... More

This used to be our go to special occasion restaurant. We haven't been there in several years. My wife decided to take me for my birthday. We usually go to the big steakhouses now for special occasions. What a disappointment. This used to be the last elegant place to go for a great meal. Our server was good but the... More

My Granddaughter was celebrating her Confirmation with a dinner for 35 people; an event not out of the scope of this place that we have enjoyed for 40+ years. The experience, however, did not inspire confidence and was disappointing to some degree. First, they seemed short staffed on a Monday evening which, I believe was at least half of the... More

The Dilworthtown Inn is a beautiful restaurant with an excellent chef. Always a treat! The duck and the filet are the two favorite choices of this couple. Try it for a special occasion soon!
